With the emergence of the Democratic South Africa, a number of disciplinary problems emerged. One of these problems is truancy of school children from schools. The South African Schools Act (1996, p. 6) provides that if a learner who is subject to "compulsory attendance" fails to attend a school, the HODS (heads of departments) may take certain measures. These include among others informing their parents. This study tried to identify some of the major causes of truancy in area and came to conclusion on possible strategies to improve learner attendance, thus, minimizing juvenile delinquency, reducing school dropouts and protecting youth against drugs.
